I hope your weekend has been relaxing so far. I can say mine has been and I've had lots of time for stamping, and I'm actually planning on spending most of today stamping too.
Since it is Sunday, that means a new Paper Players Challenge. Anne Marie has a fun theme challenge this week called "Into the Woods." Now, I have many stamp sets that would work for this challenge. My usual approach is to pull out one or two sets, look for a sketch and then papers that works with the stamps, and go. This morning, I had in my mind to make a Christmas card and I'd pulled out my SU Peaceful Boughs set, but as I was looking through my patterned papers, I came across the Pick A Pattern DSP. Well, there went my Christmas card idea! I did this instead.
I've used Jen's sketch from this week's Freshly Made Sketches. It's simple and the design allows the DSP to be the star. I pulled out the coordinating SU stamp set called Pieces and Patterns which works perfectly for Jen's design. This card went together in no time. The green vertical element is the reverse side of the woodland paper design. I stamped the sentiment using black ink, several times, in order to make it very dark. Then used VersaMark and heat embossed it with clear EP, and popped it up with dimensionals after fussy cutting it out. The little puffy woodgrain heart embellishment is from my stash. Probably from a kit I purchased at some point.
Here's the inside of the card. The images are from the same SU stamp set.
Don't you love that little pink fox?!
Thanks all! Have a great Sunday,
